A study conducted in 17 countries that collected more than 17,000 responses concluded that, when it comes to happiness, many people attach greater importance to travel than to some of the major events in their lives, such as their marriage day.
Although the commissioner of the study – Booking.com, one of the big players in the travel market – can make you question its surprising results, at first sight, the truth is that it has scientific value, and can really shed some light on the growing importance of traveling in human life. It doesn’t matter if it’s a two-week vacation in a 5-star resort on a paradise island or just a weekend abroad. Travelling has a prominent place among the activities that increase happiness. Let’s see why.
